Michau's Battery Meter

Michau's Battery Meter is probably the only PalmOS utility that tells you how long your battery will last until you need to recharge it. Need to use your PDA for a long time without a charger? Check if your batteries won't dry out before you finish your work!

Another feature is the battery icon in menu bar. Now you will be able to know your battery status in all applications, any time!

Note: Battery time prediction requires calibrating your battery. To do this, launch the application and select Calibrate... from the menu. During calibration, your battery will be discharged by 15% and the application will record the time it took. This measurement will be then used to predict battery time. The calibration process can take several hours, and you will not be able to use your handheld until it finishes. Your Palm will turn off automatically when the calibration finishes. On new PDAs, it is recommended that you discharge and charge fully your battery before calibrating, because battery indicator tends to be very inaccurate on new batteries.

Alternatively, under PalmOS 5 you can use live battery measurement. This option will measure your battery usage as you go, adopting in real-time to your current battery usage. You don't need to calibrate the battery when using this option, but you need to use your PDA for some time until enough measurements are gathered.

Please note that battery time prediction can differ a bit from real performance, due to differences in battery usage.
